What are orbs? These mysterious floating balls of light have been photographed by many people, and there have been many explanations from the rational to the outlandish. So, what are we to believe? I think I'll leave that up to you, and I welcome your comments on the matter. But for now, take a look at our new Free Wallpaper that shows some orbs I found.

I'll talk no further. My tale has been told. Let's get to the photo before we get old.

If you'd like to see more of my work go take a look at any of my three sites. I'm the editor here at Nature Center Magazine, and I also have two blogs. The Everyday Adventurer is my nature blog where I tell stories of my daily nature hikes and the things I encounter, with more photos like this one. Rat Tales is where I get to share some of the fiction that I write. No photos there though, just some very cool stories.

  1. The only rational explanation I can think of it the camera flash refecting off moisture in the air.

      That may be the best theory I've read so far. All of the rational reasons I have suspected have had to be crossed off my list each time I tested them out again. I'll keep looking for logical explanations, but I'm not really sure I have the capability to find one. I have to say it's been a fun little mystery.
